"After experiencing the last two training institutes virtually, I was not sure what to expect. Well, the in-person event exceeded my expectations, and I cannot wait to see more – I will now join and become a member!"

Already Know You Can't Make it to Chicago?

Although hundreds of community corrections professionals will join us in beautiful Chicago, IL, APPA recognizes that travel is still difficult for many during these uncertain times. As such, our goal is to be THE supplemental educational resource for your agency, not just for those who can travel. For that reason, APPA is proudly hosting this training institute as a hybrid event. So, those unable to join us in-person can purchase a virtual ticket to cost-effective training from your home or office.

As a reminder, you get the benefit of live-streamed sessions, on-demand workshops, and webinar recordings.
